"Shepherd's Staff has been invaluable as our church has sought to send ministers of the gospel in a manner worthy of God, (3 John). We highly value the partnership and relationship we have with Shepherd's Staff. May God bless this organization as it helps local churches steward the gifts of their people into all the earth."

Understanding Cross-Cultural Challenges
As independent missionaries serving a local ministry, we could not do what we do without Shepherd Staff’s administrative support, especially in the area of finances. More than that however, their understanding of the complexities and challenges of cross-cultural ministry has been a huge blessing to us.
"Shepherd's Staff Mission Facilitators has been an enormous support and overall blessing to me and our entire church. Since 2006, Jeff Jackson and the Shepherd's Staff team has helped our Missions Team hone our vision, better serve our missionaries, and excite our entire church about our Missionary God and His plan for our church in reaching the lost. I can't express how highly I recommend any church to engage with SSMFI about sending missionaries to the field."

Always There For US
We are Chuck and Anita Saunders and have been with Shepherd's Staff since its beginning and during our time serving the Lord in Manila Philippines and now in Oxford, England. We are so thankful for the freedom that our mission has always given us in the variety of outreaches that the Lord has brought our way. The office and administrative staff have always been there for us, when we have had questions or needed technical help with finance reports. We thank God for our mission team!

Lightened Our Load
"Our church has been blessed by the ministry of Shepherds Staff, who have helped our international church plant to Croatia administratively. We have found their staff to be helpful and eager to do all they can to help us as a sending church along with our church planter and his wife to raise funds effectively, and process their ministry finances in a way that enables them to operate with integrity. This has lightened our load as a sending church and has enabled us to focus on giving spiritual care in Christ to our church planter and his wife, which we are very grateful for! Shepherds staff allows you as a sending church to carry out the equipping and spiritual care of your church plant, while aiding your church planter or missionary in their administrative needs."

All the Essentials
"Shepherd's Staff Mission Facilitators was very beneficial in giving us new insight into the total care of missionaries on foreign fields. They cover all the essentials from the day a person is called until the time they retire and beyond. Shepherds Staff is of great benefit and blessing to all of those serving as senders."

Much More Than A Facilitator
We have been with Shepherd's Staff since we first moved onto the mission field in 2012. Shepherd's Staff takes care of our donations that come in, tax receipts and write-offs, W2s, retirement, and so much more concerning the financial aspects of being a missionary. Not only this, but their team reaches out to us personally, to care for us spiritually and practically. Shepherd's Staff is so much more than just a facilitator, they are a partner in the ministry with us. They truly hold up our hands - helping us fulfill the calling God has placed on our lives.

High Quality Care
"Over the last 15 years Calvary Murrieta has partnered with Shepherd's Staff in caring for missionaries. Our partnership has resulted in high quality care for our missionaries in the field, as well as educating our church on reaching the unreached. Shepherd's Staff has been a valuable resource in preparing, maintaining and caring for our missionaries."
SSMF's provision of all those administrative details (donor receipting, payroll, retirement benefits, health insurance) that a small church struggles to do has allowed us to remain on the field and fulfill God's calling. It is a blessing to have Shepherd's Staff stand in the gap between us and our sending church.

Serving in Kenya
"After having supported different missionary families for years, our church came across Shepherd's Staff when we were looking to send out our first missionaries directly from our church. Shepherd's Staff made it possible for us to send that first family. Since then, they have been a blessing and incredible resource in enabling the gospel to go forth to the ends of the earth. Shepherd's Staff is an indispensable partner in helping us accomplish our church's mission of sending missionaries."

Outside the Box
"Our Global Partners think outside the box and found a sending agency that can help them achieve those outside the box goals in Shepherd Staff. We’ve enjoyed our communication and relationship with Jeff and the rest of the staff."
Global Outreach Dir.
In our 5 years with Shepherd's Staff, we have felt nothing but blessed and well-taken care of. The office staff is always quick to help with any inquiries, and our supporters have been happy with how easy it's been to communicate with them as well. 5 Stars *****

Filling the Gap
"Shepherd's Staff is filling a critical gap for so many churches today. They do this not only by providing financial management services to missionaries, but also by equipping local churches to give holistic care to their own missionaries. Our church is blessed and inspired by their biblical fidelity and hands-on approach to help us go into all the world to preach the gospel."
Providing Timely Resources
I am so thankful to be a member of Shepherd's Staff. During times of unstable home support, SS has always been there for me, and has given me needed resources at just the right time. I so appreciate their ministry and support for us.
"Shepherd's Staff has provided very practical help that has enabled several of our missionaries to raise funds to go or to remain on the field. We have been most impressed with how they have done it: with absolute servants' hearts and incredible efficiency and thoroughness. You can tell they love the church and they care well for those that are being sent from the church."
